Hooray, It's a Shaker Card!

Hooray Word Die January 2024 Release Justin Adkins Radiant Gemstones 1 Shaker card

Hello everyone! I'm Justin Adkins, one of the new 2024 members to the Picket Fence Studios Blog Team, and I am so very excited to be sharing my very first post with you for the year! I thought that there would be no better way to celebrate than using a card that literally says "Hooray"!

This card's main focus is the new Hooray Word Die, which is part of our January Release! Since this die cut is just so perfectly large (I mean, it does fill almost a full A2 card panel), I wanted to use it as a shaker card and show how perfectly that it could be used with the new Radiant Gemstones 1 Glossy Cardstock! So, let's get into how I put this all together.


Now, this card does come together rather quick. Using the Hooray Word Die, I went ahead and die cut it once from white cardstock, and then a second time from the purple print included in the Radiant Gemstones 1 Glossy Cardstock. Using Liquid Adhesive, I adhered them together, with the bottom purple layer being slightly offset to peek out on the right side of the white die cut. I set these aside for later.

Next, I went ahead and trimmed down the aqua print in the Radiant Gemstones 1 Glossy Cardstock to A2 size. I used the A2 Full Front Shaker Die to cut down a piece of acetate to perfect sizing. I then used double sided tape to adhere (3) of the sides down ton the back of the Radiant Gemstones A2 Panel, creating an open pouch.

I then poured in some sequins from the Iridescent Moonshine Sequin Mix. I sealed the 4th and final side of acetate with double-sided tape, and my card front was ready to go!

The last bit that I needed to prepare was to add a little bit of a sentiment to my project. In white embossing powder, I heat embossed the sentiment "for you on your birthday", which is included in the new Lick the Bowl Sentiment stamp set, onto some of the scrap purple Radiant Gemstones Paper that I had from die-cutting my Hooray Word die cut. I cut out the sentiment with the coordinating dies and was ready to assemble.

I finished my card by doing a couple last steps of adhering. I went ahead and adhered my Hooray Word die cut piece to my card front. I then used foam tape to adhere my sentiment in the center of my Hooray Word die cut. Then, finally, I went ahead and adhered the whole panel to an A2-sized card base! My card was fully completed!

Thank you so very much for stopping by the Picket Fence Studios blog today for some cheerful inspiration! I hope this card ignites some ideas for how you can use the new January release to create some really fun shaker card projects!
